48 kilometers away from Ioannina, at the foot of Mount Tymfi, is situated the village of Tsepelovo. It is the largest village in Zagori, with 500 inhabitants. Tsepelovo was created in today’s area in the 14th century when the old settlement of Tsepelovo and the existing small settlements of the area, merged into one united settlement.
It evolved culturally and economically in the 18th and 19th century, when the special privileges of the Zagori region, combined with the migration of many of its inhabitants abroad that succeeded in commerce activities, raised the economy of the village. This resulted in the operation of several schools, the upgrading of education, as well as the building of many mansions, churches, bridges, etc
